We get to plan a wedding!!! :) My little brother proposed to Sarah last night and she said yes...actually, I believe her actual response was, "Mmmm...I guess so". He took her to a concert and waited all night for "their song". Everyone around them knew it was going to happen, including the wait staff who served about three bottles of wine to their table. I don't have a picture of the actual event (even though they came over to our house last night and we talked for about an hour - I didn't think to get out my camera...dang it!) Here's the only picture I have (in front of their new house). They almost never sit like this. And that dog isn't even theirs. He just wandered in to the picture.

(and the ring is AH-MAZING!!!) :)

Happy Mother's Day

We had beautiful weather for Mother's Day. We decided it was the perfect day to walk around Deanna Rose Farm - a local petting zoo that's gotten increasingly more awesome over the last 10 years. It's completely free to the public and they have beautiful walking trails and gardens that lead you past barns and ponds and fields full of farm animals. Goats, bunnies, cows, lambs, bobcats (not for petting), eagles, peacocks, turtles, goldfish, and buffalo.

The highlight was the fishing pond. Shannon's kids each got a bucket of worms and a pole and Emily caught a fish the second her pole hit the water. Grant waited patiently for his chance and found himself grinning ear-to-ear as his little bobber ducked under the water. We all cheered from the comfort of our swing as he showed us the catch of the day. So exciting. Shannon captured some priceless moments. (her pictures, below)

Happy Birthday to Bobby

I'm going in reverse order now. The parade was April 13th. This was April 6th (a whole month ago!) Any event with cake gets a blog entry. Plus, we love Bobby.
